Connie Stevens, Shelley Winters, Jack Carter, William Castle, Don Murray, Madelyn Rhue. A thinly disguised version of the life of Marilyn Monroe, detailing her ups and downs in life and how her erratic behavior contributes to her deteriorating career. Connie Stevens appears both with and without clothing in this made-for-TV version of the Marilyn Monroe saga. The script, based on Alvah Bessie's novel The Symbol, contrives to have Stevens portray La Monroe in everything but name, right down to entering into a marriage with a famous sports figure (also given a fictitious name). ABC was threatened with legal action by several interested parties upon announcing plans to telecast Sex Symbol. The film was ultimately shown, albeit with several minutes of nudity and profanity trimmed (this was 1974 after all), though the missing footage was well documented in the press. The full "director's cut" version was shown theatrically in Europe. This is the UNCUT European version WITH the rare nude scenes. Comes with Case.
